Kidiaba explains his celebration
Goal celebrations have made football what it is, the beautiful game. Robert Kidiaba’s celebration has become famous worldwide.
Kidiaba has been performing the ‘donkey ride’ throughout his 14-year-old career and it has become a phenomenon with youngsters on the streets of DRC.
Speaking to Fifa.com, the TP Mazembe goalkeeper says he began this dance at school where he was a sportsman doing wrestling, gymnastics, karate and judo, which may explain his acrobatic reflexes in goals for Mazembe and DRC.
“Because everyone danced when we scored a goal, I decided to do my own dance and that’s where it came from,” he told Fifa.com.
